  • I’d like to set up different pages (available to specific users) where registered users would have to fill in some forms, and the submitted information would be available only to site administrators and/or moderators. These forms would have been previously created by the site administrators with specific fields. Let me try to make it more simple: Let’s suppose I have 3 user levels, Admin ( level 1), Moderators (level 2), users (level 3). Then I’ll have 2 pages (with different forms to be filled in) available only for users levels 1 and 2 only. And 1 or 2 pages with forms available only for users level 3, but levels 1 and 2 could also be able to see them.

  • I’m unclear as to where you want the submitted information to go…

    but as for your other criteria, it sounds like just the task for TDO Miniforms. You can create as many custom forms as you like, and assign your own rules for user-level access to each one.

    this is geared toward outputting WP pages and posts, although there is no requirement that you ever actually publish the pages/posts. If you’re looking for a solution that sends the submitted data to an email addy or some such, this might not be the right tool.

    And this info which I would submit on the forms will be available where? in specific posts? pages?

    Let’s suppose I have 2 different pages, each one with one form. Page A, form A and Page B form B. Where would I see the submitted info on Page A and Page B? Is this info be available for specific users only to see?

    the information is compiled as pages or posts, and remains a “draft” or “unpublished” accessible through your admin manage section. You can then use the core WordPress user-rights system to determine which users have the right to read/edit/publish those posts/pages.

    You can also set user-level restrictions on who can access the forms in the first place.

    Additionally, you can assign a default category for each form’s submission, so you can create a category like “submissions” and have all the submitted posts go to that category as draft-status/unpublished. Again, you would use the core WordPress user levels to control which users would have access to these unpublished posts.

    That’s all I’ve got, really. Try it out and see if it works for your purposes.

    thanks! will give it a try. 🙂
